Global Citizenship and Media Literacy

In this issue, we highlight the role of media literacy in the development of global awareness, and its role in education for global citizenship skills. CML introduced Smoke Detectors! Deconstructing Tobacco Use in Media. The new curriculum teaches students to deconstruct smoking incidents and recognize product placements. CML’s Tessa Jolls participated on a panel at the screening of pivot tv’s new release Eyes Wide Open.  Also, interviews with Salzburg Academy’s Paul Mihailidis and veteran media literacy advocate Jordi Torrent, who manages media literacy projects at the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations.
